Repeat - The Smalls Talks to Menlo Innovations!

Wow, it is that time of year again and both of your hosts (Just Nate and DK) are both on vacation again at the same time and they could not find the time record a new episode this week.  So they did what they do best and had a conversation about one of their favorite guests from this year.   Listen in as your hosts "Just Nate", Dennis K along with guest speaker Chris E talk to the CEO and Chief Story Teller of Menlo Innovations, Richard Sheridan.  The Smalls team is a huge fan of Rich and everything that Menlo stands for.  The team talks through all the ups and downs that Menlo Innovations have had in order to break the mold and how they created a joyful place to work.  Menlo's mission is:  "End human suffering in the world as it relates to technology.®"  Rich tells stories throughout this nearly hour long podcast as he talks about how they were all focused on delighting others with the work of our hears, our hands and our minds.  Rich states the key to success and how they have been so successful is they set out to make a culture where your more likely to take action than to take a meeting. A key to Rich's success is he had a different goal than most.  His goal was to try to succeed, where others goal is to try not to fail.  Don't let failure get in your way, run the experiment and if it don't work, try something else and learn from the mistake. It sounds simple, Create a Intentional Culture! We can't suggest Rich's books enough, you can find them at nearly any books store or online, see links to both books below from Amazon.
